ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A downtown Anchorage food pantry has been closed for two weeks after a pipe in the boiler room burst, flooding the building.

KTUU (https://is.gd/JqmYpX) reports the New Hope on the Frontier food pantry serves about 250 families each week.

Food pantry director Adam Ziegler says the organization had no choice but to tell clients they couldn’t offer them help.

Ziegler says water damage repair estimates are still unknown, but everything will not be covered by insurance.

Ziegler says just replacing furnaces and boilers could cost up to $20,000 alone.

Meanwhile, clients have been able to go to other food pantries while New Hope tries to determine how to pay for the damage.
